Clever Corner

  • angel-wings
    These angel wings were painted by my daughters and myself on the side of one of the buildings on our property. If you ever need a little help from an angel you know where to come.

  • spools
    These old wooden spools were used in textile mills and on looms in factories. I have screwed them into the wall in our barn to use as hooks and holders for halters and lead ropes. It has worked out really well and is definitely a conversation piece.

  • ladybug-rocks
    These little lady bugs are made from rocks found on the shores of Lake Superior, a place that I have vacationed with my family all my life.  They have been painted and then coated with clear nail polish. We have glued them in hiding places all over the barn. Come out some time and see if you can find all of them.

  • cc-table-2
    These bars were made out of old salvaged wood for a special event we hosted. The bar tops are decorated with beer bottle caps, with a resin poured over the top.

  • cc-table-1

  • cc-towel-rack-2
    One idea I came up with while working on the bathroom was to take old bits and use them for towel racks. They are attached to the wall with a piece of leather from an old cut up leather chap.

  • cc-towel-rack-1

  • cc-candle-holders
    If you look closely these candle holders are actually the ends that held the bar of old bathroom towel racks.
